A loan of $2,900 helped a member to purchase peanuts.

Kalamo Group's story

This client, Sharlotte, is a merchant and a member of the business association "Kalamo". She is a woman living by herself (without a husband), 35 years old, and the mother of five children, who are all students. She has been a peanuts vendor for two years. She is requesting a loan from Hekima. She is going to purchase 30 kg of peanuts to grow her business. She had started off with her own funds from a friend.

For the future, she would like to purchase a parcel of land and to provide education to her children. Thus, she thanks Hekima for supporting women entrepreneurs by granting them microloans without the need for collateral during this time of armed conflict in the country's east.
